Two 18-year-olds are in custody and are expected to be charged Friday with the murder of a former St. Louis University volleyball player.
Twenty-three year Megan Boken was shot and killed Saturday afternoon while sitting in her car in the Central West End.
St. Louis Police Chief Dan Isom says robbery was the motive.
The crime attracted a lot of attention, especially because it occurred in broad daylight in a busy neighborhood.
Mayor Francis Slay expressed his sympathy to the Boken family and said making St. Louis safer is a priority.
Services are planned in suburban Chicago for a former volleyball standout killed in St. Louis during what police say was a robbery attempt.
Investigators say 23-year-old Megan Boken was shot in the neck and chest in her car Saturday while she was in St. Louis for an alumni volleyball game at the university she'd attended there.
As of Tuesday, police had made no arrests, and no charges have been filed.
